Journal of Information Technology Management (JITM)
ISSN #1042-1319

A publication of the Association of Management


The JITM is a forum for the communication of solutions found by practitioners and academicians to the multifaceted problems associated with managing information and information technology as a corporate resource. The JITM is published quarterly on the Web and once a year in paper format, from 2005 on. The JITM started publication as a quarterly peer reviewed publication in 1990, in printed format only.

Aims and audience

Written for non-technical audiences of practitioners and of academicians, the JITM invites manuscripts with a strong applied orientation in topics such as strategic importance of information systems; information systems planning and policy; electronic commerce and e-business; Internet and network security; systems development alternatives, methods and tools; data base design and administration; network and telecommunications design and management; end-user systems development and management; role and effectiveness of the information executive; and behavioral and human resources aspects of information systems.

Manuscripts may be submitted, but are not limited to, empirical articles, theoretical and methodological papers, surveys and field research, practitioner-oriented papers and case studies, position papers on current management issues, integrative and evaluative reviews, reports of recent technological advance of applied value and other innovative formats.

Publication Process

The JITM manuscripts are submitted as attachments to an e-mail to the Editor-in-Chief, using the JITM manuscript style. Paper submissions are not expected or encouraged. Only in a few, well justified, exceptions the submissions may be submitted in paper, with an enclosed file in a diskette, or other digital media. This allows a fast turnaround from the time of the submission to the time the JITM is published on the Web.

Once the manuscript is received it is checked for viruses and identification of the manuscript (see how to make a word processor file a blind paper submission). The manuscript is then assigned to two reviewers and a Senior Editor, that together with an Associate Editor, will make recommendations on the manuscript. Once the manuscript is accepted the JITM manuscript style will be checked once more and the manuscript will be scheduled for publication on the Web in a quarterly basis.

Publication ethics and publication malpractice statement

The JITM is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices. Authors submitting their works to the journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works. The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it.
